Torrey Smith assured that he would be "all right" after Tandon Doss replaced him in three-wide sets at the end of Thursday's victory over the Browns.

Smith was seen jogging with a slight limp on the second-to-last offensive series, but neither he nor the Ravens were forthcoming on details. With a long week to rest, it sounds like he will be good to go for Week 5 versus the Chiefs. Through a quarter of the season, Smith is on pace for 64 receptions, 1,328 yards and a dozen touchdowns.

Ravens signed C Jeremy Zuttah to a two-year contract.

Zuttah was traded by Baltimore to San Francisco early in the offseason, but Zuttah didn't fit in out west and was released last week. He lands back with the Ravens after making the Pro Bowl last year and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 14 center out of 37 qualifiers. Zuttah will slide right back in there and help prop up a line that just lost LG Alex Lewis for the season.

Free agent LB Zachary Orr announced he will remain retired.

Orr said he spoke to 17 teams over the last few months, but none of them would give him clearance to play due to a degenerative neck condition that forced him to hang up his cleats in the first place earlier this offseason. Orr figures to get into coaching. He worked with the Ravens earlier in the year.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes "it would make perfect sense" for the Jaguars to cut Blake Bortles this summer.

1010 XL Jacksonville's Hays Carlyon had a similar suggestion Friday morning. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Bortles has melted down this summer, first experiencing a "tired arm" last weekend -- perhaps an excuse by coach Doug Marrone to see more of Chad Henne or not -- and then a rock-bottom preseason effort Thursday night. Bortles missed wide-open big plays, and even his completions were a chore. Bortles' 2017 salary is guaranteed, but the Jaguars can't let Bortles on the field and expose him to injury, which would guarantee his $19 million salary for 2018. Henne is the favorite to start.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes Chad Henne will be the Jaguars' Week 1 starter against the Texans.

Jaguars beat writers are having a field day following Blake Bortles' disastrous Thursday night performance. Coach Doug Marrone has been hinting at this for a week, first giving Bortles a day off at practice because of a "tired arm" and then saying before Thursday's exhibition that Henne would work with the first-team offense. Henne moved the offense and should have had a touchdown, but both Keelan Cole and Allen Robinson dropped surefire scores. Bortles' confidence is in the gutter. Henne gives the Jaguars a slightly better chance to win.

LeGarrette Blount rushed five times for eight yards in the Eagles' second preseason game Thursday night.

He also lost a fumble on one of his two catches. Blount's tenure with the Eagles has gotten off to a rough start. He's missed a number of practices for different reasons and hasn't performed when on the field. Through two preseason games, Blount has rushed nine times for 17 yards (1.89 YPC) with the lost fumble. He also hasn't stood out in practices. While Blount may seem like a value pick in mid-to-late rounds of drafts, it's critical to remember he's no longer in New England's offense, which is the only place he's had success. He's also in a timeshare.

The Ravens have already said Joe Flacco (back) will remain sidelined through next week.

Initially, Flacco wrote the back issue off as a day-to-day thing, but he's been sidelined for a month with no return in sight. All the Ravens have said is that Flacco won't play this preseason and is expected to be ready for the opener. Ryan Mallett has been beyond dreadful through two preseason starts, no matter what lies coach John Harbaugh tries to tell everyone. The Ravens need to stop messing around and find a real backup quarterback.

Patriots third-round DE Derek Rivers suffered a torn ACL and sprained LCL and will miss the season.

Rivers was the Patriots' top pick in this year's draft after they traded out of the first and second rounds. A favorite of the draft community, Rivers had been making big strides in camp and was pushing for playing time in a thinned-out defensive end spot following Rob Ninkovich's retirement. Trey Flowers tops the depth chart while Kony Ealy has been a big disappointment.

Eric Ebron (hamstring) has missed every practice this week.

Ebron briefly returned to practice last Friday ahead of the Lions' preseason opener in which he didn't play. It was expected Ebron would build on that this week, but he's again been a spectator. Ebron hurt his hamstring on the first day of camp and has missed all but one practice since. If the breakout is going to happen, Ebron needs to get his health straight after an injury-riddled 2016.

After making vague comments in Thursday's presser, Bills coach Sean McDermott clarified that Tyrod Taylor's starting job is safe.

"Well, we're always going to evaluate everything," were McDermott's initial words. Anyone who has ever followed football knows what that means. Afterward, however, McDermott told both ABC Buffalo and the Buffalo News that he wasn't considering a change at quarterback. All we really know is, Taylor will be under center Week 1, but he's going to be on the hot seat.

Speaking after Thursday's preseason game, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone refused to commit to Blake Bortles at quarterback, and said he's competing with Chad Henne.

"It's this simple: I'm looking for the best person to lead this offense," Marrone began. "It's right up there for grabs, and either person can take it. ... (Bortles has) got to go earn it." Marrone refused to even shut the door on third-stringer Brandon Allen. They're the comments of a desperate man following a fiasco of a performance from Bortles on Thursday. Bortles seems to have regressed instead of progressed on his dismal 2016, showing stunningly awful ball placement while looking like a quarterback lacking for confidence. Henne was scarcely better, but Marrone could probably convince himself Henne is more manageable than Bortles' unwieldy motion.

Speaking after Thursday night's preseason game, Jay Cutler called DeVante Parker a "faster Alshon."

"Alshon," of course, is Cutler's old battery mate in Chicago, Alshon Jeffery. Cutler certainly targeted Parker like his new version of Jeffery on Thursday night, sending a team-high four attempts in Parker's direction during Cutler's time under center and hitting Parker twice for big plays, one of which was negated by penalty. Parker will indeed take a third-year leap if Cutler is willing to pepper him with targets in tight coverage.
